I often bake Parkin in the autumn/winter time and this time I fancied putting my own spin on it and wanted to share the results with you.
I didn’t even know where Chingford was until a few weeks ago. A job came up at short notice, so I looked into my travel options and did a quick google search for ‘vegan Chingford’ and The Feel Good Cafe popped up.
A while ago I discovered there was a Victorian pub in Nottingham with an entirely vegan kitchen. Since then I’ve had this pub on my list of places to visit, and last week I finally had the opportunity to do so. I was not disappointed.
Ice blended drinks seem all the rage at the moment, it is summer after all! Every coffee shop I walk past is advertising cool, creamy delights, topped with whipped cream, sauces and sprinkles, also known as frappes. All I can think of is the poor cows who have suffered to create that calorie/sugar/fat laden drinks, so I decided to come up with a few of my own cruelty free ice blended delights – frappes, milkshakes and smoothies.
I have made some great new vegan discoveries these past few weeks. I am a very excited vegan at the moment! Most discoveries have made their way into my kitchen and turned into naughty treats. If you follow me on twitter you will know what I am talking about. Read on if you want to hear about liquid chocolate, cruelty free marshmallows, and ‘to go’ lunches now available in supermarkets. Of course it’s all vegan – just like everything from Vx is vegan – it goes without saying!
